Statement by the Board of  Madeleine’s Fund:


Leaving No Stone Unturned Limited:  12 September 2007

The Fund would like to thank everyone for their kindness, support and generosity. 
Madeleine’s Fund was set up to:



  1. Find Madeleine;
  2. Support the Family; and
  3. Bring the abductor or abductors to justice and subject to that to help other missing children
     


With the sudden dramatic and unexpected turn of events at the weekend the directors had to consider whether legal defence costs could be paid for by the Fund. 
 
The Board has taken advice from Bates Wells & Braithwaite London LLP and Christopher McCall QC.  The Board has been advised that payment of Gerry and Kate’s legal defence costs would be legally permissible subject to conditions about repayment in the event of a guilty conviction. 
 
The directors of the Fund discussed this today.  The two family directors, Brian Kennedy and John McCann withdrew from the meeting when the decision was made. Esther Mcvey chaired the meeting.
 
The Fund directors realise that there is not only a legal answer and recognise the spirit which underlies the generous donations to Madeleine’s Fund, which it
is the directors’ responsibility to steer.
 
For this reason the Fund directors have decided not to pay for Gerry and Kate’s legal defence costs.  We stress that Gerry and Kate have not asked for these costs to be paid.  However, people have already called in offering their financial support.  Any such fund to pay legal defence costs would have to be separately set up and administered.   
 
At the heart of this campaign and Fund is a little girl confused, lonely and in need of her parents.  This Fund’s money will be focused on finding that little girl and leaving no stone unturned.


12 September 2007

"The Board has been advised that payment of Gerry and Kate’s legal defence costs would be legally permissible subject to conditions about repayment in the event of a guilty conviction. " what type of guilty conviction could they possibly have been expecting at that point in time?

Precisely.

Guilty of WHAT ?      What did the Trustees know or suspect ?
And if they knew or suspected that Madeleine was dead, as they clearly must have done given the wording of that statement, then they're ALL involved in a conspiracy to Defraud by allowing the "Fund" to continue
How soon after this did Esther McVey bale out ?

It would appear folk around and about have missed this vital piece of information..

Blog Home Office in the media
Organisations:  Home Office

Posted on: 25 September 2018 

The Home Office responds to media coverage on funding for Operation Grange.

There has been media coverage of funding for Operation Grange, the Metropolitan Police Service’s (MPS) operation concerning the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Some of the recent coverage has suggested that funding for Operation Grange will expire on 30 September 2018, and that the MPS will be unable to continue the operation thereafter unless additional funds are provided.

We have received and are considering a request from the MPS to extend funding for Operation Grange until the end of March 2019.

Funding for Special Grant applications can be paid retrospectively for operational work already done in the same financial year. It is therefore incorrect to suggest that the MPS would have to discontinue its operational work after 30 September 2018 unless additional funds were provided in advance of this date.

The Home Office maintains an ongoing dialogue with the MPS regarding funding for Operation Grange.


Special Grant funding is usually available to police forces when they face significant or exceptional costs. The cost of Operation Grange – which, to date, is £11.6m – has been met through Special Grant funding.

As usual, full details of any Special Grant awards in 2018/19 will be published after the end of the financial year.

Verdi, I posted this on the Corrieo da Manha thread, on 4 October 2018

From my understanding of the article, it looks as if funding, in future, will be in "retrospect". Does this mean that Operation Grange can continue, but no more funding will be given, unless there are results? Your guess is as good as mine.

This leads me to believe that "in retrospect" allows them to avoid answering the question whether funding is to continue or not. In my opinion (for what it's worth) it's a blank cheque to do whatever they like without them having to answer awkward questions.

Note: "as if THE abduction"
They had already decided that the McCann's theory was the correct one and it was an "abduction".
